Audio: Aaron LaCrate – Dope on the tables Mixtape

Aaron LaCrate – Dope on the tables Mixtape

LaCrate impressed me right off the bat though by blending an acapella of Wu-Tang Clan’s “Da Mystery of Chessboxin'” with Eric B. & Rakim’s instrumetanl for “Juice.” Either song is dope on it’s own, but LaCrate matched the BPM’s up sweet and created a monster out of the two. Finishing the song off by going back to Rakim’s original vocals and then gradually merging it into Big Daddy Kane’s live “Wrath of Kane” definitely set the proper tone. I was convinced that LaCrate was not only smart with his song selection but serious about his mixtape craft.
